Watch the birdy - not current - Lyngo Theatre


Watch the birdy


It all starts with an egg that doesn’t want to hatch...His mum is busy, like all mums these days, and can’t hang about. She’s got to get down South with all the other birds before the Winter arrives. So when she leaves Percy the gardener has to step in and see if he can convince Birdy to come out.

Is he shy, lazy or scared? With that hungry eagle flying about he’s got good reason to be frightened but Percy isn’t alone in looking after Birdy. There is Nancy the invisible spider, Sheila the spitting fish and Jeremy the sleepy bear as well. Throw in the wolf and Polly the butterfly and this is our most populated show! All characters are played or portrayed by Patrick Lynch in a show full of quick changes, magical disappearances and a host of excitable woodland creatures.

When Birdy does hatch out of his egg to say hello our audience really feels that they helped Birdy finally come into the world.
